Summer at the beach and Amanda Conklin's stuck in summer school. Well, at least she doesn't have to take care of her little brother and sister. That's Chrissy's job.

Chrissy seems like the perfect babysitter — so kind and trustworthy. But Amanda soon discovers Chrissy's terrible secret. Babysitting is Chrissy's job — but killing is what she does best!

My rating: ★★★★★

Amanda and her family are off on vacation to Seahaven, leaving behind their home on Fear Street for the summer. But the Fear Street curse follows you around no matter where you go. And unfortunately for Amanda, not everything will be sun and games for her because, first, she has to go to summer school! Second, apparently Amanda is so irresponsible that he parents have decided to hire a nanny for her younger siblings. Enter Chrissy. Charming, helpful, evil, fun Chrissy. Oh, did I mention evil? Amanda certainly thinks so. But her parents don’t believe that sweet Chrissy actually has an underlying evil plan. So Amanda sets out to prove her theory, before Chrissy decides to do something really sinister, like IDK kill someone!

From the minute that Jenny accepts the Hagen babysitting job, she knows she has made a terrible mistake.

First there is the dark and gloomy Hagen house, filling her with dread and horror. Then the crank phone calls start, and Jenny discovers a creepy "neighbor" prowling in the backyard. When she finds a threatening note in her bag, she realizes that this isn't a harmless game.

But who wants to hurt her? What kind of maniac is willing to scare her... to death?

My rating: ★★★★☆

The Babysitter was a pretty good book, overall. I was a big fan of the classic premise—recent attack on babysitters... OMG is Jenny next?!—and mystery of it all. I was also imagining Jenny babysitting on Fear Street, because that would just be the perfect setting for this! But alas, this is not a Fear Street book.
